Several scenes from the 1920 Baseball World Series between the Cleveland Indians and the Brooklyn Robins (also known as the Brooklyn Dodgers). Opening scene shows ballpark and players meeting at home plate, including Wilbert Robinson and Zack Wheat of Brooklyn and probably Tris Speaker of Cleveland seen partially behind an umpire ( and wearing a black armband out of respect for the recent death of Cleveland shortstop, Ray Chapman). Some questions have been raised about the captions appearing in this clip. For example, the first game action scene, is entitled "Jimmie Johnson scores for the Dodgers." Johnson did score for Brooklyn, from third base, on a hit. But in the clip, it appears the scoring runner may be rounding third base, rather than starting from there. Also, the scoring team clearly has dark colored hats--as the Indians wore--and the fielding team has white--the Robins. It is believed the play is actually Joe Wood scoring for Cleveland on a double by Steve O'Neill in the 4th inning of game 1. The second action scene is captioned,"Grimes scores on Griffith's double." But a close look shows the batter running only straight over first base, with no turn towards second. It is believed this may actually show Myers hitting into a 5-2-3-2 double play in the third inning of Game 2 ( with the final throw from the Cleveland first baseman to the catcher edited out.)
